Trap Door

Posted on 2 Apr 2018

Ongoing Arika collaborators Reina Gossett & Eric A Stanley's new book Trap Door - Trans Cultural Production and the Politics of Visibilty (Critical Anthologies in Art and Culture) is out now published by MIT Press.

"The increasing representation of trans identity throughout art and popular culture in recent years has been nothing if not paradoxical. Trans visibility is touted as a sign of a liberal society, but it has coincided with a political moment marked both by heightened violence against trans people (especially trans women of color) and by the suppression of trans rights under civil law. Trap Door grapples with these contradictions."
